A quick note that almost all of our library is on sale this week as part of Steam’s latest week-long deals, with discounts ranging from 51% to 86% off individual products. Starward Rogue isn’t included this time around due to its recent release, but the game will carry another minor discount in the coming weeks.

Hey, the Arcen wiki is now open for all to edit!

 Well hello!  I’ll have more information on Stars Beyond Reach later in the week.  But for the moment, I wanted to give a quick important announcement about our wiki.  Previously it was invite-only, and mainly edited by staff.  Consequently it was often out of date. Now it’s open to anyone to edit, although you do […]

Followup to last year’s AI War postmortem (now discussing Bionic, TLF, etc).

Last June I wrote a postmortem of AI War, which also wound up being a form of history of Arcen as a whole.  But now a whole year has passed, and we’ve released Skyward Collapse: Nihon no Mura, Bionic Dues, and The Last Federation in that time.  We also have a lot more data on […]

Major updates to the Arcen Store, plus discounts on Skyward and Shattered!

Skyward Collapse and Shattered Haven have both gotten official linux support this week, but that’s not all that’s been going on. The Arcen Store has had a visual and functional overhaul and now both looks better and works better.  There are a number of things that are easier for me on the back-end, but more […]

Shattered Haven 1.500 “Linux Support!” Released!

This one brings official linux support to the game for the first time, as well as a 64bit build for OSX.  There are also a couple of other minor tweaks in here for your enjoyment. Enjoy! This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have any […]

Wallpaper for Shattered Haven.

Ah, Shattered Haven. I get that it’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but I feel like it’s so under-appreciated all the same. It really has a special place for me in my life. Anyhow, this wallpaper is just made of awesome, which surely is something we can all agree on, at least. ;)

About The Recent Schedule, and TLF Updates

A really great question from a recent post: Hi Chris – Is the last federation pretty much the final product now? Unless I’ve missed something the last update was June 6th to 1.24 -25 Before that you were changing every two or three days. Thanks I’ve posted a few notes about this in the Off […]

The holidays are coming up fast, and so ’tis the season to start thinking about gifts for friends and family.  Arcen’s catalog of games has really swelled this year, and you may have missed some of our titles.  Or you may be new to Arcen, and may have overlooked our excellent older titles.  Here’s a […]

As a small token of our appreciation for the support you’ve given us, we’re releasing […]

Shattered Haven 1.013 “Shingen Entryway” Released!

This one is mostly a couple of minor tweaks, but it does let you see one new cutscene that you could not see before. Some clever players were able to get into the Shingen Rapid Prototyping Facility in a way that I did not expect, and then were getting stuck because that has not been […]

Shattered Haven and Tidalis Featured in Pure Indie Bundle

Our puzzle games Tidalis and Shattered Haven are included as part of Bundle Stars’ new Pure Indie Bundle.

Shattered Haven 1.012 “Flying High” Released!

This one is just a couple of minor tweaks and fixes that mostly affect bonus content after the game has already been won. Enjoy! This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  When you  launch the game, hit the big […]

Last Call for Steam Savings and IndieFort Bundle

Just a quick reminder that both the AI-war featured IndieFort Spring Bundle and the major Steam discounts on our full library of titles are available for just a few more hours, so act quick if you haven’t already! Plenty of new coverage to share as well, including some in-depth interviews Chris took part in last week: Co-Optimus: Indie-Ana […]

Shattered Haven 1.010-1.011 “Squid Anomaly” Released!

This one is just a couple of minor tweaks, as well as a fix for a more important bug that only affected people with really unusual framerates (so very much an edge case). UPDATE: 1.011 fixes a bug that was introduced in 1.010. Enjoy! This is a standard update that you can download through the  […]

Arcen Catalog Steam Sale, IndieFort Spring Bundle, and Full Indie Summit

What a busy month it’s been! (Alright, year). Upcoming Game reveals aside, we have several new developments to share during this week alone: Steam Sale: Entire Arcen Catalog 75% Off Steam’s put the whole lot on sale this time, and I mean everything.

Shattered Haven OST on sale through Band Camp!

The Shattered Haven Original Soundtrack is now on sale through Band Camp! If you enjoyed the music, check it out at: http://arcenmusic.bandcamp.com/album/shattered-haven Thank you for your continued support!

Shattered Haven 1.009 “Tiki Escape” Released!

This one is just a couple of minor bugfixes. Shattered Haven is something that people who are playing it really seem to love, but we’re really having trouble getting the word out.  If you play it and love it, please spread the word!  We can use all the help we can get.  A huge thanks […]

Shattered Haven 1.008 “Bonus Speed” Released!

This one has some various fixes and tweaks, but the main thing is to make the Phoenix Forest a bit quicker to traverse on your first time through.  No levels have been removed, but two regular levels are now bonus levels, and are behind “combination doors” that you won’t be able to open until much […]

Shattered Haven 1.007 “Wrath Of Doors” Released!

This one is a fairly minor update in the main, but it fixes a number of level design issues late in the game where doors would turn out to be one-way and trap you if you didn’t use your suicide pill. Shattered Haven is something that people who are playing it really seem to love, […]

Shattered Haven 1.006 “Balloon Flight” Released!

This one has a variety of tweaks and fixes in it, as well as a new vehicle: a fast version of the hot air balloon for use in Alden Ridge!  Several levels have also had some new hints added to them to keep their puzzles from being quite so devilish. Shattered Haven is something that […]

Shattered Haven 1.005 “Stantonsburg’s Revenge” Released!

This one doesn’t really contain anything individually notable, but rather a laundry list of small fixes and tweaks.  A lot of them have been centered around Stantonsburg, hence the name of the release.  That town has a mind of its own, and I don’t just mean when it’s going all scary on you, the player.  […]

Shattered Haven 1.004 “Gunfight With An Eyeball Snake” Released!

This one includes a new boss fight that involves… well, eyeball snakes and guns, as I suppose you could guess.  This is actually the boss level that you can watch me design in the level editor in our recent Let’s Play videos.  There are also a number of fixes and tweaks included in this update, […]
